About Robert

I am a management and strategy consultant to a US Education company based in Boston. I run a successful Airbnb holiday let in Bath with my wife, Helen, who is of course the chief creative energy and who has done a wonderful job of making now over 150 guests delighted over our first 18 months. You can find our listing here, Come and stay?! I bought the VW California simply because I love it, the vehicle is an icon and I know my family will love it too. Its really an extension of our philosophy, of offering value for money and a home away from home (in this case - literally!). There are no more than a handful of top specification California's in the UK - its quite a phenomenal piece of kit. Enjoy it!!

This is an amazing machine. It is the closest you will ever get to being in a lunar command capsule. Everything has been designed by German engineering geniuses, so that there are an almost infinite number of little compartments and suchlike in which an almost infinite number of gadgets are perfectly stowed. Everything works like a dream, and touches like the heating which you can activate at a distance are, I promise you, things you will be glad to have. It's really smooth and easy to drive as well, no different from a large car, and has every wow factor you could wish for in terms of people waving at you and suchlike. Robert, the owner, is a really nice guy and absolutely honest: one of the beautiful, decorative hubcaps fell off during our journey, through no fault of ours at all, and he is sorting this out with no blame or expense to us, even though I told him I have excess insurance cover (which I would recommend to anyone on a premium vehicle like this). You will be delighted with it.

Fantastic experience! Robert and Helen (the owners) are friendly and flexible to deal with and have left no stone unturned when it comes to the campers extra touches, a Weber gas BBQ and a super comfy bed topper help to make the whole experience first class. Elsie (the Camper) is almost brand new and packs pretty much every VDub extra known to man (you can even fire up the onboard heaters from half a mile away! very handy when you've stayed a little longer at the beach than planned! as we did...). The only downside was handing her back... Thanks again Rob. We'll be back for another Elsie experience soon.
